LeSean McCoy appreciates the honor.
As part of a team with a 6-8 record and having been slowed and forced to miss two games because of a hamstring injury, he just isn’t entirely certain he deserves it.
“My season wasn’t a Pro Bowl-type season,” the running back said Wednesday of being the Buffalo Bills’ lone Pro Bowl selection. “The record is what it is, the playoffs are not in the picture, the type of plays I should have made this season I didn’t make.
“We have the No. 1” rushing “offense, but we could have done more things. We couldn’t get going.”
McCoy made the Pro Bowl three times during his previous seven seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. He has rushed for 895 yards in 12 games this year, a far cry from the 1,319 he had last season and the 1,607 he had in 2013.
“Another year in the Pro Bowl, honestly, I’m honored,” McCoy said. “But sitting back and thinking of the type of year we had, injuries and not being where we wanted to be at, it’s one of those things where it’s tough to really enjoy right now.
“Later on, I’ll be able to enjoy it more.”
McCoy did not practice Wednesday with a knee injury he suffered in last Sunday’s loss at Washington. It has been reported that he sustained a torn MCL, something the running back refused to discuss.
McCoy was non-committal about playing in the Bills’ final two games.
